Prenuptial agreements, or "prenups", have changed with the times. Prenups are a legally binding document laying out the finances of the engaged couple to protect the assets of one or the other. What used to be used mainly by extremely wealthy couples to guard their wealth has become a more common practice among couples of all socioeconomic backgrounds as the divorce rate increases. 

A prenuptial agreement may be right for you if you are:

  • more well-off than your spouse and want to protect your hard-earned assets 

  • own a business with others and need to safeguard it from becoming marital property

  • have children from a previous marriage you want to prioritize

  • or you're simply a pragmatic person. 


In Pennsylvania, a prenuptial agreement can include basically whatever you'd like, so long as you and your partner fully divulge all material assets and it is not signed under duress. It needn't be an equitable division of all your property. It can be tailored to your unique situation.
